September 22nd, 2009 is Senior Falls Prevention Day as decreed by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and as such will kickoff the Missouri Pharmacy Association’s (MPA) first ever Seniors Fall Prevention Day which will consist of events at 45 pharmacies around the state of Missouri to help educate seniors on the risk of falls and the effects that a fall has on their lives.
Senior falls are responsible for over 43,000 ER visits annually. The MPA and it’s members are making an effort to reduce that number in Missouri.
So, come join us around the state of Missouri to help prevent senior falls and the negative effects that come with them.
